By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Mikhaila Bowden and Khalydia Velasquez are the Belize Women’s National Team’s (BWNT) leading goalscorers in Belize’s dominant performance in Group C in the Concacaf W Road to Gold Cup. So far, Belize have scored 14 goals and have not conceded any in four matches.

Bowden and Velasquez have left the opposing goalkeepers bedazzled four times each.

Defender Bowden scored her first goal against Aruba in Belize’s 2-0 on September 21. Next, she bombed Bonaire in the 2-0 victory on September 25. Then she shook the Turks and Caicos Islands (TCI) goal twice in Belize’s 6-0 whipping of TCI on October 26.

Forward Velasquez was fearless against Bonaire hammering in a brace. She followed that with two more against Turks and Caicos Islands, one on October 26 and the other on October 30.

Captain Sabrina Eiley and Kaite Jones, both midfielders, have scored a brace each. Eiley converted her first against Aruba and her second in the first match against Turks and Caicos Islands. Jones, who missed the first three games because of her school commitments at Motlow State Community College in the United States, hit twice against Turks and Caicos on October 30.

The other two goals were scored by Shamika Lambey and Ashley Rodriguez, one after the other to close off the 6-0 trouncing of TCI on October 26.

With two games left, against Bonaire and Aruba in November and December, the BWNT are sure to rake more goals.
